Hi, wondered if DCS would mind me adding a speaker’s related question? I’m running a DCS Bartok with a Vitus SIA-025 Amp. It’s a lovely setup, the speakers I have sound nice and warm although lack resolution and accuracy so am thinking of replacing them to something more at the level of the source.
I listened to a pair of Minos by Vimberg who are a sister company to Tidal, they have a ceramic top and mid driver, they are ultra high resolution by the standards of anything I’ve heard before although they did deploy a Rossini in the mix which I suspect was a big factor, I also listened to an Avalon PM2 which was not quite as high res (in my opinion), maybe a bit smoother on the bass, possibly sounded a little more familiar.
I’m wondering if anyone else has any thoughts on ceramic drivers, are they a higher definition and take a bit of getting used to in the same way a higher definition Dac might? Or are they just different, like a tube amp is often warmer and you probably might like this but maybe not?
Are harder materials in drivers ultimately going to be a higher resolution in the same way that a better Dac or cables gives higher Res or is this last part of the chain more subjective?
